The new Bing-AI feature on Windows 11 taskbar is a shortcut to Microsoft Edge. When you type a question in the search box, you will not get the answer in the flyout. Instead, Microsoft Edge will open in the Bing Chat experience. In other words, the new AI can not interact with your files and settings. Instead, it acts as a shortcut to the Edge browser.

However, to use the new Bing-AI feature from your Windows 11 taskbar right now, you will request early access to the Bing-AI chatbot. If you do not like the new taskbar search box with Bing, you can replace it with the old search icon or search box with label options.
